The experiment was deigned to evaluate the effect of nitrogen levels on crop growth, yield and quality of finger millet genotypes under rainfed ecosystem. The upland condition of experimental site having sandy loam soil in texture and acidic in reaction pH (5.30) with poor fertility organic carbon (0.30%), available nitrogen (182.2kg/ha) phosphorus (8.96 kg/ha) and potassium (92.70 kg/ha) representing major soil group of Jharkhand. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design and treatment combinations consisting of four nitrogen levels (0, 20, 40 and 60 kg N/ha) in three medium duration finger millet genotypes (TNAU-1022, OEB-219 and KMR-204). The maximum response of nitrogen reported superior in KMR-204 genotype on morphological characters during 25, 50, 75 and at maturity level from Date of sowing i.e. Plant height (99.78 cm), number of Tillers per plant (2.47), Leaf area index (1.44) and Crop growth rate (7.70). The yield contributing characters like effective tillers per meter row length fingers per ear (26.88), ear length (6.82 cm), weight per ear (5.79 g), number of grain weight per ear (1701) and test weight (3.48 g) found significantly superior over all the other genotypes under balanced nitrogen application.

Keywords: Finger millets, Plant growth, Nitrogen level, Yield and quality.
